Tampa Bay Screams 2016

Tampa Bay Screams took place on August 27th at the Clarion Inn in Tampa, Florida. Upon arrival the parking wasn’t as bad as I thought. I found a parking space right away. This was a good sign because instead of going during the early afternoon hours on Saturday, I arrived late afternoon. As I walked up to the hotel there was a small patio area filled with tables and chairs. I saw some people chatting it up with drinks. There weren’t many people dressed up in cosplay; however, a lot of people were wearing horror related t-shirts and gear.

I pulled on a heavy solid black door which led inside the convention and was welcomed not only by red tinted lights, but by three helpful convention workers. All three were very welcoming and greeted me as if we were longtime friends. Inside, there weren’t many people; however, the people I did see glided from vendor to vendor.

This was the first Tampa Bay Screams and I’m definitely hoping there will be more. This convention wasn’t a large one, but due to it being smaller it felt intimate, as if it was made particularly for horror fans. There was something definitely for everyone, rather if you are into Grindhouse horror, exploitation horror, cult horror, independent films, films in general, collectibles, comics, and/or graphics.

Overall, I had an awesome time at Tampa Bay Screams. I saw many familiar faces rather if they were actors/actresses, directors or bloggers. It was awesome connecting with people who love what I love.
